ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- For four decades, the Archdiocese of Santa Fe knew that Father Arthur Perrault preyed on children.
The church’s own documents, obtained by the KOB 4 Investigates team, shows a pattern of cover-ups to ensure that Father Perrault wouldn’t get caught for his crime of sexually abusing children.
In 1992, after 38 people, most of them men, came forward with claims of sexual abuse by Perrault, he fled. For two more decades, no one knew of his whereabouts.
In the video above, 4 Investigates reporter Chris Ramirez sits down with Perrault's victims and reveals how he was finally brought to justice.
